Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 3—This follow-up to Fleming and Karas's Muncha! Muncha! Muncha! (S & S, 2002) shares many of that title's fine qualities: lighthearted conflict, lively language, and those mischievous, childlike bunnies. With winter coming, Mr. McGreely snuggles up with a good book, but "Knocka-knocka-knocka!," three little rabbits come begging at his door. Since he won't let them in, they sneak in through the mail slot ("Tippy-tippy-tippy, hide!"). Each successive night, as the snow falls and the wind howls, the "pesky pufftails" find a new way to enter. Each morning, the man discovers evidence of their trespassing-footprints on a chair, nose smudges in his tub, even "bunny drops" on his pillow! Yet, despite his ever-expanding search, which is captured in cumulative verses ("over and under,/above and below,/here and there,/high and low"), he cannot find the critters. Sealing up his home with boards and bricks, he triumphantly waits out the season in peace. When spring arrives, it's the bunnies who have the last laugh: they're outside munching flowers while Mr. McGreely is trapped indoors. Done in gouache, acrylic, and loose pencil lines, the folksy artwork is full of changing perspectives and charming detail, and captures all of the action with warmth and humor. Perfect for winter read-alouds, this sassy sequel will please fans of the first book.—Martha Topol, Traverse Area District Library, Traverse City, MI

From Booklist

In this follow-up to the well-received Muncha! Muncha! Muncha! (2002), Fleming continues her farcical tale of man against rabbits. Once again, a trio of "pesky pufftails" disturbs Mr. McGreely. This time, they are intent on sneaking into his cozy home for winter. After finding rabbit fur in his breakfast and on his favorite chair, Mr. McGreely tries everything to keep the bunnies out. He nails up his mail slot and windows, covers his chimney, and finally, after waking up to a pile of droppings on his pillow, bricks in his doors. Barricaded, he settles in for the winter, but when spring comes, he discovers his error: he is blocked in, while bunnies frolic on his warm, green lawn. A few references toMuncha! may lose kids who don't know the first title, and this story isn't as strong and cohesive as the original. Still, Karas' amusing paint-and-pencil illustrations make the most of the slapstick, and the irresistible rhyme and onomatopoeia ("Tippy-tippy-tippy, wiggle, through the mail slot. Tippy-jiggle.") will read-aloud well to a rowdy crowd. Gillian Engberg

Candace Fleming and G. Brian Karas' TIPPY-TIPPY-TIPPY, HIDE! tells of three little bunnies on Mr. McGreely's doorstep who beg to come inside for the winter. But he already shared his carrots with them last summer and is determined not to share his house too. Trouble is, the bunnies are pesky and clever - and sneak in. Whether you've seen the bunnies from MUNCHA! MUNCHA! MUNCHA! MUNCHA! Before or not, TIPPY-TIPPY-TIPPY, HIDE is a fun sequel and an equal winner for newcomers and old fans alike: libraries will find it a popular lend.

My three year old loves this book, especially when the bunnies leave bunny droppings on Mr.McGreely's pillow. She loves to "read" it aloud to herself after we put her to bed, and it's so funny to hear her over the baby monitor saying "Some bunnies been in my house!" We haven't read Candace Fleming's first book "Muncha!Muncha!Muncha!" but I'm eager to read the prequel. The end of the story was a little confusing for my daughter, because it ends in sounds and pictures, with no written conclusion (in trying to keep the bunnies out, Mr.McGreely ends up locking himself into the house and he can't get out in the spring), so I used to have to explain the ending each time to my daughter. The rest of the story is great however and is sure to keep your child riveted.

I was so happy when this book came out since the young children I teach absolutely love "Muncha! Muncha! Muncha!" In this followup, it's winter and the bunnies are cold - they keep sneaking into the grumpy old man's house to get warm. Whenever we ay "tippy, tippy, tippy, hide!" we "tiptoe" with our fingers on the floor and then quick hide our hands behind our backs. Kids look forward to this and it adds to their engagement with the story. This is really a fun one - you won't be disappointed!

Borrowed from local library to read to our grandson while he was visiting us. Just loved this book and so did grandson. Purchased a used one (in like new condition) and am very pleased with the "like new condition" purchased at a fraction of the new price. First time I bought a used book online, but will not be afraid to do so in future. Will be sent to grandson as part of his Valentine's gift from us so he may continue to enjoy those bunnies!

I like this series, and I suppose if you wanted to have them all, then this one would be worth it, but I find the ending really strange. In order to keep the pesky bunnies out, Mr. McGreely locks himself up in his house so well that he can't get out when spring comes. My daughter thinks it funny that the bunnies shove flowers through the hole and Mr. McGreely eats them, but I think it's just plain weird. I love Muncha Muncha and the next one, Tippy tippy splash. All of them are fun read aloud books.

More About the Author

I have always been a storyteller. Even before I could write my name, I could tell a good tale. And I told them all the time. As a preschooler, I told my neighbors all about my three-legged cat named Spot. In kindergarten, I told my classmates about the ghost that lived in my attic. And in first grade I told my teacher, Miss Harbart, all about my family's trip to Paris, France.

I told such a good story that people always thought I was telling the truth. But I wasn't. I didn't have a three-legged cat or a ghost in my attic, and I'd certainly never been to Paris, France. I simply enjoyed telling a good story... and seeing my listener's reaction.

Sure, some people might have said I was a seven-year old fibber. But not my parents. Instead of calling my stories "fibs" they called them "imaginative." They encouraged me to put my stories down on paper. I did. And amazingly, once I began writing, I couldn't stop. I filled notebook after notebook with stories, poems, plays. I still have many of those notebooks. They're precious to me because they are a record of my writing life from elementary school on.

In second grade, I discovered a passion for language. I can still remember the day my teacher, Miss Johnson, held up a horn-shaped basket filled with papier-mache pumpkins and asked the class to repeat the word "cornucopia." I said it again and again, tasted the word on my lips. I tested it on my ears. That afternoon, I skipped all the way home from school chanting, "Cornucopia! Cornucopia!" From then on, I really began listening to words--to the sounds they made, and the way they were used, and how they made me feel. I longed to put them together in ways that were beautiful, and yet told a story.

As I grew, I continued to write stories. But I never really thought of becoming an author. Instead, I went to college where I discovered yet another passion--history. I didn't realize it then, but studying history is really just an extension of my love of stories. After all, some of the best stories are true ones -- tales of heroism and villainy made more incredible by the fact they really happened.

After graduation, I got married and had children. I read to them a lot, and that's when I discovered the joy and music of children's books. I simply couldn't get enough of them. With my two sons in tow, I made endless trips to the library. I read stacks of books. I found myself begging, "Just one more, pleeeeease!" while my boys begged for lights-out and sleep. Then it struck me. Why not write children's books? It seemed the perfect way to combine all the things I loved: stories, musical language, history, and reading. I couldn't wait to get started.

But writing children's books is harder than it looks. For three years I wrote story after story. I sent them to publisher after publisher. And I received rejection letter after rejection letter. Still, I didn't give up. I kept trying until finally one of my stories was pulled from the slush pile and turned into a book. My career as a children's author had begun.
